Absolutely fine - plenty of common sense. Not good that I could only get 2 hours as that was insufficient time for her and she was rushing to do her best.

L - Hampstead Heath, Yesterday

Fantastic first clean from Carla. We'd only booked a short clean but I was incredibly impressed by her thoroughness (she got the dust behind the bed which is always my mark of whether I've cleaned properly!) and how much she got through in that time. Very professional and friendly.
